The Learning experience in Franklin Lakes is top notch. Both of my children began at 10 months old. My son completed preschool in June 2021. He had a wonderful experience with his preschool teacher, Miss Ronnie. She is warm, nurturing and has a love for teaching that is undeniable! My daughter is in with the Preppers class and is thriving with her teachers, Miss Meagan and Miss Neredia! She also had a wonderful experience with Miss Lydia, Miss Ally and Miss Laurence. They are all caring and she enjoys going to school each day! Thank you for taking such good care of my children!!

I enrolled my daughter shortly after she turned 2. We were looking for a school that would provide social enrichment and a way to learn to interact appropriately with other children her age, as she was very shy and quiet up until that time. Within a few weeks, she was noticeably more talkative and has only blossomed more and more over the last year. She loves going to school and knows nearly all the teachers, the director, and front office staff, and all of them know her well. All of her teachers have been amazing and loving and Ms. Dilek and Ms. Magaly are as close to her as all of her teachers have been. I couldn't be happier with the choice we made to send her there!

My one year old son has been enrolled in TLE since September and I couldn't be happier with the center and its employees. As my first child I was hesitant about putting him in daycare but I am so glad I did. TLE is more than a daycare. My son is learning in ways that I wouldn't think to teach him at such a young age. I have nothing but great things to say about this center and would highly recommend it.

Our 4 years old twin boys had previously attended another day care facility in the area, once we found out TLE had a new location opened at Franklin Lakes we toured the school and immediately feel in love with their approach toward the children. We feel like our sons are safe and secured in the beautiful brand new school and really appreciate the educational curriculum. The owner and the director, as well as the teachers that we have come in contact with are kind and patient people. They are accessible whenever I have questions and concerns. Their willingness goes above and beyond every single day. We would strongly recommend this center to anyone else.
